Today marks the 10th anniversary of the murder of Timothy John Kelly and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division continues to investigate the case.
On December 12, 2009 at approximately 10 p.m. Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of an injured man lying on the sidewalk in front of a residence on Abbott Drive in Halifax.
